Forum: etree Subject: Terms for sharing--Creative Commons licenses?

I'd like to broadcast tracks from these on my non-commercial radio show ("Digital Citizen" on WEFT 90.1 FM, in case you're curious) so I need to know if I can do this. What would really help me is picking an appropriate Creative Commons license (see for more info) and marking this information on Many other tracks in netlabels do this. The terms for the performances are not very clear (I know who the copyright holder is, but not what the terms are). Thanks for any help you can offer.

The etree (lma) collection is regulated by the band's policies. These are available by clicking on the band's name and following it through to the policy. These predate creative commons (seem to be derived by the grateful dead's policies). the key seems to be "non-commercial" to most bands.

The creative commons licenses are often on the netlabel's works. to be able to figure out if you can play these (as I understand you can play non-commercial licensed stuff if no money is changing hands) you can check the creative commons site you cited.
